I wrote out my Autumn Essential List (you can read more about it here) recently, and one of the items on there is a large scarf. I wrap it around my shoulders in the mornings while I make breakfast, and in the cool of the evenings as I potter around. It can act as a makeshift picnic rug and a hug around my neck when the air bites. The scarf can be a flag for the wind and the wings of a bird. It’s become an item that I particularly associate with Autumn.
One afternoon, I went to the beach with the kids to wander and collect beach glass and the scarf was a companion, adding value to the time.
Chilling on the grass while the kids played in the playground. Then Miss 9 joined me.
Miss 11 asked if she could use it for a while and she ran in the wind.
As the late afternoon cool set in, I wrapped it around my neck. My daughter asked if she could take a picture of me.
This is it.
